In 2002, Tweed presented the exhibition Contemporary Studio Glass from the Collection of Don and Carol Wiiken. The exhibition introduced thirty-five glassworks created by prominent national and international glass artists. Some of the works were donated by the Wiiken's to complement the Tweed’s modest collection of glassworks acquired in previous years. The Wiiken’s saved a total of twenty-eight works. This small display features some of the best from their collection.
